Windows 7: Installation error from USB: No device drivers were found

Installation error from USB: No device drivers were found

I am having problem with installation Windows 7 on my new Lenovo G50-80. I downloaded legit ISO and created bootable USB.

The error I am getting is this: Installation error from USB: No device drivers were found

Tried different methods from Rufus, Microsoft USB tool, Ultra ISO etc. Different copies of Windows 7 - Ultimate and Home Premium.

Tried to boot same USB from my desktop PC and it works fine.

How could I resolve my problem and finally install Windows 7?

Here is the Bios settings (I tried to change from Windows 8 to Other OS in BIOS, but still no success):

Let me tell you this. I had problem even before Windows 8 was installed on this laptop and when I had FREE DOS as my OS. First I tried to install Windows 7 Ultimate and got this "No device drivers were found" error. Then I installed Windows 8 from USB. As my last step I tried once again to install Windows 7 and got same problem. Like I said I tried different things from Rufus, UltraISO, different Windows 7 versions. Tested my USB on my desktop PC and it works. Don't know where is the problem when I use same USB on laptop I get this error, but on desktop it works...

Maybe there is some BIOS settings I have to change?

Hi,
Yep with this I might see why = Optimized for win-8
Attachment 373377

If the prior link didn't help some manufactures locked out win-7 I believe from being installed,
UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with

You can also follow up on the Eightforums tutorial :/

It is possible the issue is with the flash drive ?

Flash drive should be OK since I tried on my desktop PC and it boots just fine. Also I used same USB to install Windows 8 on this Lenovo. Here I created a thread where I am getting weird error "This tool can only be run on systems booted using PC/AT BIOS" when I am trying to create bootable USB. Maybe this is my main problem?

Don't think Lenovo G50-80 is locked from installing Windows 7. I can select "Other OS" instead of Windows 8 in BIOS.

When I use UEFI I am getting this error:

Hi,
Disable Fast boot and try again.
Leave everything else at default.

I think your suggestion resolved my issue. As you can see changing Boot Mode from Legacy to UEFI I got this in Security tab:

Secure Boot: Disabled but Secure Boot Status: Enabled



When I disabled "Fast boot" like you suggested and restarted, went into BIOS again Secure Boot Status was changed Disabled. Probably this caused the problem.

Then I went to Exit tab and selected "Load Default Settings" my settings were back to Legacy and booted again. Pressed F + F12 and in boot manager selected USB. It worked and I was able to install Windows 7! Thx for help! Will mark this thread as solved!

Step by step:

1) First change boot mode from Legacy to UEFI
2) Restart and press FN + F2 to enter BIOS again
3) In Security tab you will see this "Secure Boot: Disabled" but "Secure Boot Status: Enabled" http://i.imgur.com/Xg0H72q.jpg
4) Go to Boot tab and disable "Fast boot" http://i.imgur.com/CSUEskx.png this will change Secure Boot Status to Disabled
5) Restart and press FN + F2 to enter BIOS again
6) Go to Exit tab and select "Load Default Settings". It will return settings back to Legacy from UEFI. Save and exit.
7) While booting press FN + F12 to enter boot manager and select USB from option to boot
8) Now you should be able to install Windows 7
